“He ask to buy my best two players and they wanted to join him at Manchester United. I respect Erik Ten Hag because if this. No coach has ever convinced them ever. Now they will be joining Manchester United soon”-Xabi Alonso have announced two Man Utd signings as they set to leave Bayern Leverkusen.

Xabi Alonso’s potential move to Liverpool could hinder Manchester United’s summer transfer plans, potentially impacting the signings of two players. As reported by the Manchester Evening News (MEN), United have been monitoring Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong and Edmond Tapsoba.


Frimpong, operating as a right-back, and Tapsoba, a center-back, garnered interest from United last summer before flourishing under Alonso’s leadership at Leverkusen. While Tapsoba showcased his prowess in Leverkusen’s recent triumph against Bayern Munich, Frimpong made a notable impact off the bench, netting a late goal.


Discussions between United and Frimpong’s representatives took place last year, but United postponed pursuing the right-back due to Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s improved form and Diogo Dalot’s contract extension. However, with Wan-Bissaka’s contract nearing expiration and a likely summer departure, United seek a new right-back.


Tapsoba, contracted with Leverkusen until 2028, also captures United’s interest as they aim to bolster their defensive ranks with a youthful and agile center-half for the upcoming season. Nonetheless, Alonso’s potential move to Liverpool, where he could succeed Jurgen Klopp, may sway Frimpong and Tapsoba towards choosing the Reds over their Premier League counterparts.


Alonso, though content at Leverkusen, refrains from outright dismissing a future Anfield return, stating his current focus on the journey with Leverkusen and not contemplating future steps.
